All eyes will be on the new striker signings as West Ham United host Manchester City on Sunday

Gianluca Scamacca and Erling Haaland should both make their Premier League debuts at some stage, though it could be that at least one is from the bench

It's the start of the Erling Haaland era in the Premier League

Manchester City begin their 2022-23 Premier League season with a trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham on Sunday

The Hammers finished seventh in the domestic circuit last season, with a semi-finals exit in the Europa League, as David Moyes would rather his side secure a group stage spot in Europe than the playoff round of the Europa Conference League

Meanwhile, after losing the Community Shield to Liverpool, Pep Guardiola's focus will be set on the elusive Champions League trophy while defending their Premier League crown this season following the arrivals of Erling Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, Stefan Ortega and Julian Alvarez this summer

Gianluca Scamacca is unlikely to be handed his West Ham debut as the Hammers welcome Man City to the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon

David Moyes' side start their Premier League campaign at home to reigning champions City and will be hoping to get off to a winning start for the second season in a row

City were defeated 3-1 in the Community Shield last weekend and will be aiming to avoid two losses on the bounce to start the season, as well as putting some early breathing space between themselves and Liverpool after the Reds drew 2-2 with west London outfit Fulham on Saturday

Hammers fans are unlikely to get a glimpse of Scamacca after Moyes confirmed the Italian is behind in terms of match fitness after not being available during pre-season

Friday's signing Maxwel Cornet will also miss the tie after the former Burnley star was not signed before the deadline passed prior to the weekend fixture

The last time the two sides met was at the back-end of last season, where Jarrod Bowen found the back of the net twice in the opening 45 minutes, only for Jack Grealish and a Vladimir Coufal own goal after the break saw the match finish 2-2

Bowen is in the squad to face City, as is Coufal But there is no room for summer addition Nayef Aguerd who will miss the opening few weeks after suffering an ankle injury in pre-season

Manchester City kick off another Premier League title defence with a tricky trip to West Ham United on Sunday, as the reigning English champions take on David Moyes’s side in their 2022/23 Premier League opener at the London Stadium

Manchester City have not rested upon their laurels since edging Liverpool in a neck-to-neck Premier League title race by a two-point margin last season, showing intent in the summer transfer window While Raheem Sterling and Oleksandr Zinchenko have departed, a world-class striker has arrived in the form of Erling Haaland, alongside another top young attacking talent in Julian Alvarez

Manchester City have also reinforced their star-studded midfield roster with the addition of Kalvin Phillips, as they look to defend their Premier League crown However, the champions experienced a difficult start to the new campaign, going down 3-1 to Liverpool in the FA Community Shield

While West Ham United are no light work by any means, Manchester City will want to put things right with an emphatic victory at the London Stadium The hosts, meanwhile, will feel they have every chance of gatecrashing the top four after another fruitful season that saw them reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League and finish seventh in the Premier League

However, West Ham will have to play out of their skins to get a result here The Hammers look a much stronger outfit than they were last season and have acted smartly in the market to boost their squad depth After punching above their weight in past seasons, they have brought in real quality in Gianluca Scamacca, Nayef Aguerd, and Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola, and Maxwel Cornet

Manchester City begin their Premier League title defence with a trip to the London Stadium to take on West Ham

City have a good recent record against the Hammers, though they dropped points at the same ground in May last season and tasted defeat to David Moyes' side in the League Cup in October Pep Guardiola will be without Aymeric Laporte for the trip to the capital, although he looks set to hand a league debut to Erling Haaland

City sold Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Aleks Zinchenko in the summer, so this league season may be a test of the depth available to Guardiola Read how our writers think City should line up against West Ham and use the interactive team selector below to pick your best starting XI:

City need as many players as possible who are comfortable operating in small spaces, because if West Ham are anything like they have been in recent years they will give almost nothing up

That means Phil Foden in from the start, despite his scarce minutes in pre-season and Jack Grealish doing so well, and it also means Ilkay Gundogan getting the nod ahead of Bernardo Silva for his extra goal threat Mahrez needs to be at his best not to be at risk of an early substitution because West Ham have stifled him before by shutting down all space in the box — although the arrival of Haaland could change that

Pep Guardiola says he is happy to be working with a small squad as he prepares his Manchester City side to face West Ham United on Sunday

The Premier League champions make the trip to the London Stadium to face David Moyes' Hammers on Sunday as the new season gets underway, with West Ham looking to cause an upset on the opening weekend against Guardiola's side, who are set to be without defender Aymeric Laporte for the game in east London

The Spaniard is currently sidelined after having surgery in the summer on a knee injury, with Guardiola not expecting him to be available until September as he continues his recovery, after not taking any part in City's pre-season preparations as he works his way back to fitness

Speaking recently, Guardiola said: "[Aymeric] Laporte is injured He had surgery after the last few games [of last season] when he made an incredible effort "He's looking really well, but we have to be careful because it was a knee He needs time I think he will be out for August and then maybe he will start to be with us in September

But Guardiola insists he is happy with the squad at his disposal as he prepares City to face the Hammers, following four summer arrivals to date in Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez, Kalvin Phillips and Stefan Ortega
